What does it offer?
The LEIA Distance Learning Course provides a technical training programme of study which aims to extend the candidate’s knowledge of lift and escalator engineering. It has been designed by, and for, the lift and escalator industry to address the difficulties created by a highly mobile workforce and the demands of changing British and European standards requirements.
The course is divided into Full and Half units of study. The full units cover engineering principles, lift technology, electric traction lifts and hydraulic lifts. The half units cover lift and escalator technology, safety and commercial management.
